The modern varieties of nicotiana, commonly known as tobacco (G."Fuglas"), were not native to Middle-earth, but a close relative was found in Eriador and Gondor. This plant, known as "Sweet Galenas" or "Pipeweed" was likely introduced by settlers from Númenor and probably not originally home to the Westlands. The origins of the plant may have been in Aman or the coastlands of Easternesse or the New Lands. One variety, sweet galenas, was cultivated by Hobbits as the recreational drug known as "pipeweed". Another type, bitter galenas, was not commonly smoked.A type of Sweet Galenas was also known and cultivated in the Mûmakan.
